Symptom monitoring

Students and employees are required to self-monitor their temperature and symptoms

The university requires you to complete a daily symptom and temperature checklist, but self-monitoring is easy and fast with the #CampusClear app. #CampusClear provides a daily push notification that will act as a regular reminder to check your symptoms and temperature.

Daily symptom checklist and the #CampusClear app

  • Do you have a fever (temperature 100.4 F or higher) without having taken any fever-reducing medications?
  • Before you take your temperature:
    • Wait 30 minutes after eating, drinking or exercising.
    • Wait at least 6 hours after taking medicines that can lower your temperature, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen and aspirin.
  • Do you have new loss of smell or taste?
  • Do you have an unusual or unexplained cough?
  • Do you have unusual or unexplained muscle aches?
  • Do you have a sore throat?
  • Do you have shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?
  • Do you have chills?
  • Do you have an unusual or unexplained headache (different from typical headaches)?
  • Have you experienced any gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite?
  • Have you, or anyone you have been in close contact with, been diagnosed with COVID-19, or been placed on quarantine for possible contact with COVID-19? Close contact is defined as within 6 feet of someone for 15 minutes or more.
  • Have you been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a medical professional or a local public health official?
You have severe symptoms, including difficulty breathing, seek medical attention or call 911.

If you select one or more symptoms, you will not be “cleared for campus” access, so you should be sure to select only symptoms that are new, unusual or unexplained rather than those associated with health conditions you regularly experience.

If you are not cleared for campus access, the app also directs you to available support resources. If you are directed to stay home, call your health care provider (MU Student Health Center, if student) for guidance regarding testing.

If you are unable to run the app due to technological restraints or other reasons, you are still required to monitor your temperature and symptoms daily and could be asked to verbally verify that you have checked your symptoms that day.

If you have problems with the #CampusClear app or have questions regarding use, please reach out to us at campusclear@missouri.edu. Your feedback will be used to help us improve the #CampusClear experience for our university community.
